G6 reception vs G5


I go hunting in the 43732 zip code. Last year with my G5 I was able to send and get text. This year with my G6 I’m not able to get any text and have to drive miles to get a signal. I’m looking to get either a phone that works better or one that I can put an external antenna on for better reception. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.


Likely nothing to do with the phone but rather the carrier partner the phone is configured with. Open the Republic App on your phone, hit the gear and then about. What does it say there for “SIM Type”?


Hi @patrickm.v3p3ha,

Please let us know if you’d like to try a different SIM card in your phone before replacing the phone. It’s a simple process, and definitely far less expensive than a new phone.
